  • The School of Communication takes pride in preparing students for leadership careers in communications, media, and in teaching and the performing arts. This preparation is grounded in solid scholarship and an all rounded approach to education anchored in our philosophy derived from our Christian orientation and biblical teachings.Today’s graduate of SC shares the same foundation that has distinguished us over the years and seen our alumni excel into prominence with careers in advertising and public relations, print and electronic journalism, as well as teaching and performance in music, theatre and writing. It is our practice to bridge the gap between theory and practice in training. SC marries hands on approach to education together with an understanding of the background that has informed the practice. This is only possible because of the talented and skilled faculty in our schools and the support structure we have put in place. The Department of Communication ranks as the largest and most comprehensive school of communications in the region. Only two years ago, the department was recognized by UNESCO as a Center of Reference for studies in journalism and our students have won numerous awards over the years. But it is not these achievements that distinguish us as a school. We boast one of the most qualified team in our field in the country. We do not only hold annual conferences to keep our faculty on the cutting edge of discourses in our discipline but our faculty participate in the most significant conferences in our field besides publishing in some of the distinguished journals in their areas.
  • The School of Law was licensed to offer legal education on 30th July 2018 and opened her doors to the first batch of students in September of the same year. This was after a rigorous process of accreditation involving a market survey, drafting of the curriculum, stakeholder’s forum, inspection and approval of facilities and other resources and recruitment of staff. The School chose Media and Communications Law as her niche area buttressed by Intellectual Property Rights. Consequently, the School currently has two departments: Media & Communications Law and Intellectual Property Rights. Additionally, the School set up a centre for Medical Law and Ethics to offer short courses in this field to Healthcare providers and lawyers as part of their respective professional continuing education, research and advocacy. The School admits both full time and part-time students.
